Many thanks to those who attended and enjoyed our holiday party at the Holiday Club. Though, I wasn't able to attend, I understand copious amounts of libations were imbibed and some pretty nice consumables consumed (courtesy of the Holiday Club). Thanks to all the participating meetup groups!

Are you curious, confused or excited about bitcoin? This virtual currency has become a mainstream phenomenon in the news this past year leaving some ready to invest and others just confused or skeptical. Will bitcoin become a viable way to do commerce on the internet? We are fortunate to have a bitcoin expert in our midst!

Conrad Barski, M.D., author of several books and currently working on a bitcoin book ( ( will tell you everything you need to know about this exciting new technology, featuring his own cartoons! Learn what makes bitcoins so cool and how they work. Also, for the more technically minded folks, we're going to cover bitcoin programming 101. Prepare for an action-packed hour and a half of bitcoin geekery!

Join us Tuesday, January 14 for a fun-filled way to start the year. This session is appropriate for all who are interested. Conrad's development skills may hold special interest for those in the development realm.

In the mean time, have a wonderful holiday season and my sincere wishes for the happiest of new years!
